    T: "How'd you guys get such good seats? Did you win those? Really? First in line? Wow...Those are damn good seats...[laughs]...Not that those seats back there are any worse...in fact, I prefer those seats in a way! Far more radical...but these guys can see the nose hairs right here...I have a feeling most people here don't know who we are so in celebration of that...[crowd applauds]...maybe I'm wrong, but...we're just gonna play a bunch of new songs that we wrote that we're trying to work on, so, um, I hope you like em!
